If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and wondering whether you can get an abortion for free, the answer is no. An abortion costs money, and the price you will pay depends on the type of abortion and the gestational age of your pregnancy, among other factors.

If you’re considering abortion, taking certain steps to protect your health is essential. And if you’re worried about the financial implications of pregnancy and want to talk to someone about your options, A Woman’s Concern can help. We offer free medical services and community referrals that can help with housing, food, material items, and other costs associated with pregnancy and birth. 

How an Ultrasound Protects Your Health

If you’re considering an abortion, getting an ultrasound first is vital to protect your health. An ultrasound is a simple scan that can reveal critical details about your pregnancy, including:

  • Gestational age: This is an important detail since certain abortion options, like  abortion pill drugs, are only FDA-approved if your pregnancy is under 10 weeks. Trying to take these drugs when your pregnancy is further along puts you at a greater risk of experiencing complications. 
  • Location: Ultrasound can help rule out an ectopic pregnancy, which is a potentially life-threatening situation in which the embryo attaches and grows outside the uterus. If you are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, you will need emergency medical treatment.
  • Viability: Roughly 26% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, and an ultrasound can help reveal whether your pregnancy has signs of life. 

At A Woman’s Concern, we offer a free,limited ultrasound after you receive a positive pregnancy test at our office, because we believe in making your health the priority.
